Happy New Year everyone! I am so excited to share this post with you because my first Stitch Fix finally arrived! My lovely husband gave me a Stitch Fix gift card for Christmas because he knows I have been dying to try Stitch Fix for a few years now. I thoroughly enjoy reading reviews from other bloggers who have tried this awesome subscription box service and hope you enjoy this post too. If you would like to see the pretty items I received in my fist fix, keep reading!
About Stitch Fix
If you are new to Stitch Fix, let me give you the run down. (If you already know about the service, you can skip ahead to see what I received.)
- Stitch Fix is a subscription box service where you pay a $20 styling fee to have a stylist select five items of clothing. Stitch fix offers clothing, shoes, and accessories.
- When you first sign up to receive a box, you will fill out a style profile. It’s a quick and easy process that allows you to let your stylist know your likes and dislikes. You can also write a note to your stylist to let them know if there are any specific items you are looking for. I told my stylist that I wanted mostly casual tops and sweaters and that I didn’t want to receive any jewelry in my fix.
- It is super helpful to link your Pinterest fashion board to your style profile so your stylist can look at what you’ve been pinning for inspiration. Keep it updated and make sure you write notes about the items you are pinning so your stylist gets to know your style better.
- When you receive your fix you have three days to decide what you want to keep and what you want to send back. Stitch fix emphasizes the importance of trying on every item in your box, even if you don’t think you will like it. It’s fun to try on things you might not pick out for yourself.
- If you decide to buy at least one item, your styling fee will count towards that item. If you decide to keep all five items, you will get an 25% discount. This discount can really work in your favor, especially if you are on the fence about an item!
What’s In the Box?
- A personalized note from your stylist. My stylist was Sahna and she did an amazing job!
- An itemized bill.
- Picture cards with ideas for how to style each item in your fix.
- A prepaid envelope you can use to send back whatever you decide you don’t want to keep. This makes the process so easy and hassle free!
- Five items of clothing, shoes, or accessories hand picked by your stylist, specifically for you!
Okay, that’s enough info for now! Check out what I received in my first fix!
What I Received in My Fix
First off, I love this Colibri Plaid Henley Top by Market & Spruce ($48). The colors are so pretty, and warm. I think this top will work well for fall and winter, especially here in Texas where it doesn’t get very cold. It is a light weight material and is super soft and comfy. I love the way the it looks paired with my Caslon skinny jeans and brown Franco Sarto riding boots. This top would also look cute with a solid scarf and vest.
It may be hard to see in the pictures, but you can either wear the sleeves long, or you can roll them up and use the tab on the sleeve to button them in place. There is a small pocket on the front which I think is a fun detail. I also love that this is not a full button up and that it is longer in the back.
I absolutely love this next top which is the Mondale Crochet Detail Blouse from Fun2Fun ($44). This shirt is definitely my style. I love wearing neutrals like black and white, especially for work. I just think they make me look a little more sophisticated and professional. There are so many nice details about this top including the crochet detail around the neckline, and the keyhole in the back. I also love the loose, flowy shape, sheer material, and floral pattern which make the shirt look very feminine and soft. I paired this top with a black cami, my Caslon skinny jeans, and Sam and Libby black scallop flats from Target.
The next thing from my box is the Dinah Open Front Cardigan from Staccato ($48). Cardigans are my absolute favorite item of clothing in the whole world and I wear them year round (even in the Texas summers). I am always cold and love to bundle up in a soft cardigan and this one is perfect.
I was actually not sure about this cardigan when I first put it on because I didn’t know what to do with the drapeyness of the front. However, after my husband took some pics, I was in love and didn’t want to take it off.
It is so soft and warm even though it is a thin material! I think the colors and pattern are lovely and will look good with my black jeans and lighter colored jeans as well. I was also pleasantly surprised at the price for this piece which I think is very reasonable at $48.
I paired the cardigan with my Caslon jeans and the Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee from Market and Spruce ($44). This was the item I was least excited about receiving in my fix. It is just a simple black hi-lo tee. However, since I fell in love with every other item in my fix, I decided to keep this as well because it was essentially free with the buy 5 discount. Even though I normally wouldn’t spend $44 for a plain black shirt, this will pair well with my other cardigans and is a staple piece. It is nice quality and I appreciate that it is lower in the back. The top is also super soft which is a plus!
And finally, the star of the show! These are the Laila Cut Out Bootie from Diba ($70). I was not expecting to receive shoes in my fix, but I am so glad I did. They are exactly my style and actually went perfectly with the outfit I was wearing when I opened the box. I have been looking for the perfect pair of booties for a long time. I am amazed that a stranger was able to pick out shoes for me since I am very picky about shoes! They are a gorgeous olive green color (which I love), and have virtually no heel. The material is a buttery suede and they are so comfy!
The Results of my First Stitch Fix
Okay guys, that is everything from my first Stitch Fix! I was not expecting to keep everything, but with the buy 5 discount, it makes sense for me to do so since I loved 4 out of 5 items. My stylist Sahna did an amazing job! She really listened to my preferences and delivered exactly the types of items I was looking for. I am so impressed with this subscription service!
The total with the buy 5 discount and $20 styling fee credited toward the fix was $170.50. I saved $63.50 with the 25% off which is a great deal!
If you are interested in trying Stitch Fix (which I highly recommend), you can use my referral code which will give me a credit so I can hopefully make another Stitch Fix post for you in the future! It is really worth trying out even if you decide to keep only one item. It’s also a great gift idea for a friend or family member!
